    A aileron locking gear
    And two drinking water tanks douglas aircraft part number 5136139-8

    Nice bits. Sorry I can't ID any of them, but I love aircraft parts. In my living room I have a coffee table I made out of a Lockheed Hudson wheel. Also, around me a guy apparently has part of a Pucara brought back from the Falklands, hopefully it will come up for sale. Again, nice haul

    that is cool - perfect for basement bar
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    If you can find a number on the bulkhead then someone will be able to identify it.

    i stuck the aircraft order number into the computer and came up with this

    The SAAF used two Dakota variants, the C-47A Dakota Mk.3 with Pratt & Whitney R-l830-92 engines and the C-47B Dakota Mk.4 with the R-1830-90C motors with two-stage supercharger allowing an increase in all-up weight from 29 300lb to 30 000lb. Our future "roadhouse" aeroplane was one of the latter and was officially designated a C-47B-5-DK (the suffix indicated it being built by Douglas Oklahoma plant) and was built on Contract No AC-40652 which included 305 aircraft for the UK government of which five were replaced by other models capable of towing gliders and 10 were diverted to South Africa.

    You could build yourself a Hobbit house and use the bulkhead for the door!
